I have a question regarding hair loss and low testosterone. Over the past 4 years my hair has been slowly thinning and now it’s at a point where it’s noticeable. I know I’m going to be bald sooner than later. Anyways, I’ve also been dealing with severe depression, loss of libido, I work out but don’t really gain any muscle, etc. After reading some of the symptoms of low testosterone I think that this could be my problem.
So my question is: If you have lowered testosterone in your body will that cause you to lose hair slower? Lets say I do get diagnosed with low testosterone and receive treatment, will my hair start to fall out faster? Can lowered testosterone actually cause hair loss?
Any significant amount of testosterone could cause the gene for balding to express if you have it, and there is no level that you can control to reduce your balding. Testosterone levels don’t work as an accelerator pedal regarding the speed at which your hair loss progresses.
